Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I had an unexpected result (a certain generated mail being considered spam) and as such, I set out to to find a way to prevent this from happening again. Finally I ended up on superuser and asked the question why it was happening.

However, now it is not happening anymore... even using the exact same details I cannot reproduce the problem.

What should I do here (or in similar cases) should I simply answer it myself with a message like "it must have been a fluke" and accept that or is there another way to close this more neatly?

I think its interesting to note that a question about email antispam gateways ends up on superuser. – Jim B Apr 19 '10 at 20:40
I didn't add it here as it was not related to my question, but I am using Drupal, so it doesn't fit Stack Overflow and setting up a website on a shared hosting doesn't qualify it for Server Fault, so while Super User is not a truly good fit, it is the best fit. – Jasper Apr 19 '10 at 21:52
it wasn't a good fit and was closed as off-topic:… – quack quixote Apr 20 '10 at 3:08

You can flag for moderation attention and ask for it to be closed as no longer relevant.

I believe that you can delete your question if it really has no value at all.

You can't delete your own question if it has answers or upvotes. – ChrisF Apr 19 '10 at 20:30
@ChrisF: one can only hope that an off-topic question would at least not get upvoted, and for what is written on this question, it seems plausible that he had no answers. – perbert Apr 19 '10 at 22:36
Someone did take a guess at the cause before I found out that it just didn't happen... – Jasper Apr 19 '10 at 23:42
Oh and since then (I did add the fact the question was false to my question), someone did start ranting about how it was strange that I expected the email not to be identified as spam - and talked about some system you can use to identify your mail server and thus get your emails not classified as spam. – Jasper Apr 20 '10 at 0:19
